Bold Predictions

Recommended Posts

It is time for the annual bold predictions thread.  This is not a thread for posting geeky projections from FanGraphs and Baseball Prospectus.  This is where you use your gut to foretell the Tigers future in 2020.

Miguel Cabrera hits 30 home runs and the Tigers don't finish last in the central.

Gardy, completely fed up, resigns 10 games into the season, is hired by Cincinnati and the Reds win the World Series.

Jeimer Candelario exceeds .250/.350/.400 with double-digit homers, and Tyler Alexander becomes a solid middle of the rotation piece.

Candy, Jones, Reyes, Goodrum, + Romine are all decent enough, Cabrera hits 25 HRs, Cron and Schoop hit 30 HRs each, Boyd, Norris + Turnbull each throw 175+ IP with sub-4.5 ERA, Zimm does 150 IP with a decent sub 5 ERA, the pen is solid behind JJ, Buck, and a sudden emergence of Jose Cisneros, and the hot seasons from Maybin and Manning propel them to 80 wins.

I think there is a chance Norris has a break-out type of year. Sub 4 era. Stays healthy.

Tigers are within 5 games of either first or a WC on June 1st.

Jacoby's defense bounces back some, he stays healthy and hits 20hrs,  so all told he ends up posting 4 wins and is our most valuable position player.

And even then it's just a joke. The Tigers will somehow be 6 games back after 5 games.

By August 1st, Garcia is the closer, set up by Turnbull and Norris.  Candelerio has a nice bounce-back season in Detroit, and Cameron in Toledo.

There were many people, all over, who thought Norris had more potential than Boyd when we acquired them. The problem with prospects, you just never know.
